Welcome to Wilgus Hall
Wilgus Hall, named after James A. Wilgus and built in 1963, accommodates approximately 230 women. Wilgus is located on the corner of Greewood Avenue and College Drive. Wilgus Hall is specifically unique because it is an all-women’s residence hall. This living option offers a terrific opportunity for women to build a close community within the hall. Each floor features a kitchenette and lounge area for the convenience of its residents. Wilgus hall has a newly renovated basement with study rooms, a computer room, laundry facility, ice machine, and offers The Lynn Collins Conference Room that features a TV and a kitchen in a large meeting and dining area. The conference area is well utilized throughout the year by many organizations on campus.
Wilgus Hall sponsors an annual Women’s Weekend and Holiday Party. This event is open not only to UW-Platteville students, but to community members as well. The Holiday Party is the highlight event of Wilgus Hall that residents and the community looks forward to every year.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Welcome to Wilgus!
We are so excited to be welcoming new and returning students to Wilgus Hall in just a few short weeks. For the students returning to Wilgus, we can’t wait for you to arrive. For the new students, we can’t wait to meet you!
I myself am new to Wilgus this year. My name is Melissa Stoner and last year I served as the Resident Director of Morrow Hall. While I will miss everyone in Morrow I am so excited to start this new chapter with all of you. What a chapter it will be. The transition from high school to college can be a challenge but our staff will strive to make your first year of college an amazing one. The Wilgus Hall staff is a great team trained to help you succeed and have fun.
Before you arrive on campus there are some things you may want to get done. First, reach out to your roommate. Talk to them on the phone or message them on Facebook. Figure out who is going to bring what to campus. Also, start getting involved with the hall. Follow us on Facebook on the University of Wisconsin-Platteville: Wilgus Hall page.
Make sure to check this webpage and the Facebook page from time to time. We will have more updates and our hall’s opening newsletter up and running soon.
Enjoy the rest of the summer and get ready for a great year at UW-Platteville!
Wilgus Hall Resident Director
P.S. I want to give a special shout-out to all of the women who signed up to be Welcome Crew Volunteers. We can’t get move-in day done without you!
